Company Bio

Ultima Media, based in London, publishes web, event and print activities which provide intelligence, networking and buyer-seller connections to the global automotive industry.

The Problem

When Ultima Media started to experience performance problems on their current hosting platform they contacted Hydras to discuss the options of migrating it to a higher-performing, scaleable platform that would eliminate the uptime problems they were experiencing with their current provider, and allow future growth and expansion.

The Solution

Hydras architects worked with the Ultima Media management to discuss the options of moving the systems to the AWS cloud, based on the requirements and budgets that were given, before deciding on a fit-for-purpose solution.

Armed with the architectural blueprint Hydras built the new the system and worked with the Ultima Media development team to migrate, test, correct problems and subsequently tune the systems within AWS for optimal performance along with adding system monitoring and alerting.

The Benefits

Ultima Media now have a fit-for-purpose scaleable system where potential performance issues are diagnosed prior to them being experienced.   The result is a vastly improved uptime.
